Relocating back from Australia, our client wanted to create a luxury retreat that felt like a home from home. The allocated space for the kitchen was very generous, so furniture proportions had to be seriously considered in the design.
Somewhere to cook, socialise and take in the uninterrupted, breath-taking Salcombe sea views. A place for entertaining and unwinding, with a colour scheme that brought the outside in.
The tall curved ends to both tall banks of furniture helped with flow between the rooms adjacent, whilst providing much needed discrete storage. The Elica Diva extraction also provided task lighting around the cooking area, without looking too much like an extractor and the chunky character oak breakfast bar helped to break up the vast surface area of the island.
The upholstered bench with integral towel storage was perfectly positioned for those wishing to prepare for taking a dip in the adjacent swimming pool, but it also doubled up as a low-level seating area.
High level display boxes helped utilise spaces that are more difficult to reach and were backlit with the same ‘sea blue’ bespoke light sheet that is present in the sink area.
Tucked away behind the main kitchen, a utility space to help declutter the kitchen was created; providing overspill storage and prep space, as well as accommodating two washing machines and a tumble dryer.
To the ground floor, we installed a drinks area that disappeared neatly behind pocket doors when out of use. We worked with the client’s interior designer to ensure that everything provided by Treyone tied in seamlessly with the planned scheme, helping to create an award-winning property in the South Hams. – Stewart MacPherson, Senior Designer
